Rainbow Butter Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 3 dozen
I made these using just red and green food coloring. Super easy to make, my only tip is to make sure you refrigerate them for at least 3-4 hours. The longer, the better. However, I didn't care for the flavor. It was too bland. Maybe next time I will add some almond flavoring instead of the vanilla.
Made these with my 4 year old. She thought the stripes were cool and we Used the scraps to make marbled round cookies which she enjoyed doubly.
I didn't bother with the ribbon effect or the food colouring, but because they are a sliced cookie, I tried something alot easier. I used maple flavouring instead of the vanilla and rolled the dough into two logs. I froze one for later use and sliced up and baked the other one. YUMMY! This is an easy and basic butter cookie recipe that comes out tender, with almost a shortbread texture. I want to try with different flavourings as well.
These taste GREAT, however, for the summer I chose purple, yellow and green colored stripes. YUCKO ! With the slight yellow of the dough from the vanilla the purple looked crummy. Judge accordingly on color choices but don't pass this one up when you have a little spare time....they're fun to do, taste super, and look impressive.
I do NOT make cookies..BUT would like to make the above. I do NOT understand this receipe at all. Please email me with a little more details so that I can make these. OR if there is another receipe that is easier, please let me know. I like the red/green effect and would use Splenda instead of sugar.Thankssassy
